7r-3s=14

3r+7s=64

Could never figure out the elimination method. Would love some help with this one. Thanks

(I multiplied the first eq. by 3)

21r + 49s = 448

(I multiplied the second equation by 7)

58s = 406

(I subtracted the third equation from the fourth, to eliminate r.)

The remaining steps are easy.

s = 7

7r -21 = 14

r = 5
